Payment of fees
Fees are due one month in advance. Payments should reach Montys on the 1st of each month. We ask parents to pay nursery fees by standing order. Any ad-hoc sessions that are agreed upon are invoiced and paid for separately.
Child Care Vouchers
Working parents may be eligible to pay part of their child's nursery fees through childcare vouchers. These are usually offered through via your employer through a salary sacrifice scheme, meaning that an agreed amount will be deducted from your pre-tax salary.
At Montys we are registered with a large number of childcare voucher companies, please contact the office if you would like to use childcare vouchers. If we are not registered with the company that your employer uses then we will be more than happy to create a new account.
Early Education Funding (E.E.F)
The Early Education Funding (E.E.F) is funding towards the cost of childcare, irrespective of your financial status. The funding is available the term after your child turns three.
A maximum of 15 hours per week can be claimed for 38 weeks a year (term time only).
Please note that from September 2017 Montys Nursery and Pre-School will only be offering the universal 15 hours Early Education Funding. At this point we will not be offering the extended 15 hours.
When your child becomes eligible for the EEF you will be notified by the nursery and asked to sign a parent declaration form.
Tax- Free Childcare
Tax free childcare is a new government scheme to help working parents with the cost of childcare. Parents can open an online account to pay for their childcare. For every £8.00 a parent pays in to the account, the government will pay in an additional £2.00. Parents can receive up to £2000.00 per child, per year towards their childcare costs. (Up to £4000.00 if your child has a disability)
To check your eligibility or to open an online account please go to the Gov.UK website and look under Tax free childcare.
2 Year Old Funding
We accept children through the 2 year funding scheme for 15 hours care a week for a maximum of 38 weeks per year (term time only). Children are referred to Montys from the Family information Service.
